The bastards.
That's terrible binder.
I'm so sorry for you.
Such a slick paint job spoilt.
Perhaps it can be buffed out?
or will you now have to re-do the whole truck?

Hows the rest of the fleet?
Have any of them been damaged?
Do you have any ideas as to who the culprit (or culprits) might be? :-X

Better keep that pallet board handy, in case they show up again.

This is a turbine Rover experimental car from the 50's, a one of, in the London museum.
anything above the reasoning of a mongrel dog is a waste of time

Hold the presses

nu info jist arrived

RE: AFL







This tractor was fitted with a V12 Cummins rated at 400hp and was fitted into a 44 inch frame,10 inches wider than standard.
A extra wide cab was designed as well as a larger capacity radiator to accomadate the massive V12.
It was built in 1951 and was the first of its kind.


Dear Mr Swishy.
I been searching google "Alaska Freight Lines inc." and have came upon a forum which has made reference to me regarding
my reply on another site.I see you have been very active on other forums including the ATHS and also have visited your
web site which I got your email address. I've attached a copy of a article from a 1951 issue
"Commercial Car Journal" which features the tractor in question.From what I've read on that forum you guys are quite
aggressive and I don't want to participate under the fear of been chewed up by you guys.Jimmy seems to be on the spot with
his comments and as for that Blinder character if he has had 50 years in the industry I'm quite sure his next 50 will be more
productive than his previous.


Thanx CC

well we might have some red faces and or who no's some retractions I doubt it though good on you Swishy and James you no how I feel about all of this through my pm's to you James leave it for long enough and it is amazing what comes to light seeya
Paul :)

I wonder did they have to get special axle housings made or was it some off highway housings for the wider chassis rails not much room left under the bonnet with all that motor

and thank you CC for clearing this up [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
